The hotel is situated in Shinjuku-Sanchome area. If you go to Shinjuku for shopping at Isetan, restaurants in Shinjuku-Sanchome or bar hopping in Golden Gai, this hotel is an ideal location. Very clean and friendly staff. Recommended for both business and pleasure.

Other guests were mainly Japanese and some from Hong Kong so this is a hotel that's a little off the radar for westerners. Hotel website is in Japanese and the hotel doesn't feature in hotel booking sites. So you need to call them to make a reservation; you might have some difficulty communicating but it's totally worth it. I stayed... More

Location: though you can walk from JR Shinjuku to the hotel, it was a bit far away. Instead, you may choose to take the local subway from Shinjuku to Shinjuku Sanchome (新宿三丁目). It took you about a few minutes but saved you some walking distance. There are a few convenient stores near the hotel, which was a good point. Room:... More

I've been here for several days in November and Via Inn and it was a great place to stay. Rooms will not provide you a lot of space, but they are clean and nice and it's enough to put your bags. It's not far from JR and Metro, so you can walk in 10 minutes. If you need to be... More

Via Inn is one of the hotels I use whenever I go to Tokyo or Osaka (they are everywhere in Japan) for work. I usually look for hotels around $70/night in Shinjuku and while you could find something a little cheaper, this hotel is well worth the price. The breakfast buffet is pretty good, the rooms are very clean and... More

First trip to Japan/Tokyo and am glad to be staying at this hotel. Simple, clean, nice and most importantly value for money. Location initially hard to locate, but once you found it, you will find it to be an excellent quiet location and yet close to the various buzzes of Shinjuku. Room wise, small in fact for some very small.... More

Walking distance from Shinjuku-sanchome station exit E2. Its about 15 mins walk from Shinjuku station to exit E2 at Shinjuku-sanchome. Both stations are linked. This hotel though small, it provides complimentary breakfast. Love love love the bread which are freshly baked daily. Different type everyday. The rooms though very clean are extremely tiny. We could only open 1 luggage at... More

This is probably the best budget hotel I stayed at in Japan. The room is bigger than all the other budget hotels I've stayed in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. It's much newer, cleaner and provide breakfast. It's actually cheaper than the hotel I stayed in asakusabasa, which is surprising considering shinjuku is prime real estate. The location of the hotel... More

Located in the middle of Tokyo. I was lucky to stay here. The price is not so expensive and the staffs are very nice. I did not have a reservation but I was able to get a room at the ladies floor. Security is also nice. I did not have any problem during my stay here. (^.^)

To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household.
